Descripción Estado de conservación: New. This is an enormously entertaining evocation of a magnificent era in Europe's history, from the battered, introvert continent after the Thirty Years War to the dynamic one that experienced the French Revolution and the wars of Napoleon. Blanning depicts the lives of ordinary people and the dominant personalities of the age and explores an era of almost unprecedented change and cultural, political and technological ferment that shaped the societies and economies of entire countries.This work's most winning quality is the sense one has throughout of being in the company of not only the most expert but also the most congenial of historical guides, a man who is himself a perfect product of the European Enlightenment: humane, rational, sceptical and with an encyclopedic learning enlivened by a mordant Voltairian wit. Let the nations rejoice: this history of Europe is a truly glorious book. SUNDAY TIMES. Nº de ref. de la librería 1425
